I’m Matt Petras, a Class of 2018 Journalism student at Point Park University. I’m a writer equipped with multimedia skills and a passion for entertainment, politics, and good stories.
While I aspire to do so much more in my ever-changing professional career, I have already completed some really cool articles and other projects. I’ve served as a writer and editor for Point Park’s school paper The Globe. There, I covered a Donald Trump rally, wrote profiles of collegiate athletes, reported on student activism, crafted fun feature stories, and more.
I’ve also interviewed big names in the comic book industry for a long-form piece on the rise of progressivism in superhero comics, looked into the policies and anecdotal stories that make up the atmosphere surrounding transgender students in Pittsburgh colleges, written feature stories and critical articles on video games, done paid work for my local paper at home The Mon Valley Independent, and more.
In general, I’m a pretty happenin’ fellow. I spend way too much on my toy collection in proportion to my age, but that’s okay.
